As challenging as this week has been, we have witnessed tremendous resilience and dedication by you and all your fellow students. City Colleges faculty and staff have been working over the past week to be ready to resume courses this Monday, March 23. All credit courses except those listed here will resume with remote instruction. The entire City Colleges team is committed to your success, and we want to ensure that you are ready to complete your courses this term.
Please read this email carefully so you know what to expect.
You can access your course(s) at Brightspace.ccc.edu, or from your student portal, or the Student Tools tab of www.ccc.edu. Be sure to check your class site early and often so that you don’t miss anything. If your instructor notices that you’re not checking in, they or an advisor might be reaching out to make sure you are keeping up with your course(s).
We want you to finish the semester strong, and we’re here to help you do that. Nearly all of our services are ready to be accessed online next week. Starting Monday, our CCC homepage, www.ccc.edu, Brightspace, and your student portal will have a link to access the following available services remotely:
• Financial Aid
• Registrar’s Office
• Business Office
• Veterans Services
• Transfer Services
• Wellness Center
• Disability Access Center
We are working on making CCC tutoring centers available no later than Monday, March 30. Additional tutoring may be offered through your course in Brightspace.
Your instructor will provide guidance in Brightspace for how to access remote library resources.
Loaner laptops will soon be available.
• For students who already completed the technology survey, you only need to verify your shipping address and agree to the loaner terms – please look out for a separate email shortly.
• Students who have not yet completed the technology survey and need a computer should complete the survey ASAP. You will find the survey in your CCC email, sent from firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are unable to complete the survey online, you can call 773-COLLEGE at any time, leave a message, and a Call Center Representative will return your call during regular business hours (8am-6pm Mon-Thurs and 8am-5pm Fri) and submit your responses for you.
Every one of us in the CCC community is here to support you as you reengage in your coursework. Please do not hesitate to ask for help, whether you ask your instructors or one of the teams offering services mentioned above.
